From sensitive preggo state to post-pregnancy sleep deprivation, new moms deserve to be healthy and well. After all, their babies depend on them for a nourishing momma care.
If you’re a future mom, it’s recommended that you protect yourself and your little one by getting vaccinated. Flu shots, tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis vaccinations are crucial in making sure that you and your baby are protected from the dangers of certain illnesses.
Make the most of baby’s nap time
Every mom is thrilled when their babies are sleeping soundly. It just means one thing- mommy me time. Let’s say your little one is in dreamland for an hour or two, take a long shower, hit your yoga mat and do some meditation or simply take that much-needed sleep.
Indeed, laughter is the best medicine as research shows that a good giggle can fight off colds and flu infections. That said, keep that positive attitude and laugh out loud like nobody’s watching.
Good hygiene should be part of your routine whether you’re pregnant or not. Regular handwashing must be practiced especially when you have a baby in the house to prevent transmission of germs. Note that your baby is highly sensitive to dirt and diseases and can be at a greater risk than anyone else in the house.
Reach out for help
Moms need support and we mean a strong and loving support system from family and friends. To have a momma break, ask a family member to look after your baby while you sleep. Talk to your fellow mom about your anxiety and fears to vent out your feelings and get a dose of a good advise.
